The Orchard, 110 Snowmass Drive in Carbondale, has released plans for the second phase of the Good Seed Community Garden, located on the north side of The Orchard property.

There will be more than 45 new garden plots this year, available in two sizes. The annual cost is $25 for a small plot (5-feet-by-10-feet) and $40 for the large plot (5-feet-by-20-feet).

The garden will open Saturday, April 13, for the 2013 growing season. The Good Seed Community Garden is unique in that as part of signing the gardening agreement, gardeners are asked to contribute 10 percent of their produce to those in need through either LIFT-UP or Feed My Sheep.

An informational meeting to learn more about the Good Seed Community Garden will be hosted at The Orchard at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 11. Spanish translation will be available. For more information please contact Garden@ TheOrchardLife.com.
